Matthew 13:53-58 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
A prophet without honour
53 When Jesus had finished these parables, he moved on from there. 54 Coming to his home town, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. ‘Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?’ they asked. 55 ‘Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?’ 57 And they took offence at him.
But Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is not without honour except in his own town and in his own home.’
58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.
Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
